Oh we do like to be beside the seaside…
Especially when the seaside in question features a welcoming, four star hotel with a gorgeous spa and fine restaurant serving top quality local produce.
Feel welcome to pack your bucket and spade but you might find that the golf clubs are more useful for today’s Big Deal with The Marine Hotel, Troon.
Handily located just 30 miles from Glasgow, The Marine Hotel, Troon has long been one of the gems of the Ayrshire coast. It’s particularly popular with golfers who love the fact that it overlooks the 18th hole of the Royal Troon course.
Purpose built in 1894, the hotel was given 4 AA stars in 1912 and has maintained that rating ever since – the only Scottish hotel to have done so.
Available seven days a week, this tranquil Big Deal is for two people to enjoy a relaxing overnight stay in one of The Marine’s double or twin rooms.
As well as a full Scottish breakfast in the morning, guests can enjoy a £40 per room, in-house spend. You could use your voucher to treat yourself in the spa; have dinner in The Two Fat Ladies Restaurant or spend it in the bar.
The choice is yours.
Friday and Saturday night stays will be charged a £20 supplement.
2 AA Rosettes
The proud holder of 2 AA rosettes, The Two Fat Ladies restaurant at The Marine Hotel opened in November. The latest venture from the highly successful family of Glasgow Two Fats restaurants, the new branch features a stunning maritime mural and also overlooks the Royal Troon to Arran.
The modern menu specialises in fresh and seasonal dishes. Exact choices will change regularly but typical options might be starters such as the Cullen skink or the mackerel tartare with pickled vegetables and dressed micro herbs. Popular main courses include the blade of Scotch beef with chive mash, button onion, pancetta and red wine jus or the oven-baked fillet of cod, chorizo and chickpea stew.
Finally, the Deal includes full use of the spa’s soothing facilities including the gym, swimming pool, sauna, steam room, Jacuzzi and solarium.
Of course, you can also use your in-house spending voucher to book in to the hotel’s Beauty Rooms and indulge in a spa treatment.
The Marine Hotel has lots of enthusiastic reviewers. This is a recent review from TripAdvisor:
‘The welcome on check-in was the first indication of the high quality staff, all showing a welcoming and polite manner throughout our stay. Our room was standard; the hotel was nicely decorated and the pool and gym clean and well maintained. Our meal in The Two Fat Ladies was delicious, with very good service. The service at breakfast time was also first class with staff having a happy, friendly approach to greet people in the morning. We had beautiful weather and the view from the bar and restaurant was stunning. Will definitely visit again.’
If you do like to be beside the seaside then get on board today’s Big Deal with The Marine Hotel on the beautiful Ayrshire coast.
